My battery life is horrendous after the update. SAMSUNG needs to fix this ASAP. Dropped down thirty percent in one hour!! I hate it!
yes the ram increased from 2.3 to 2.7 but the phone is more hungry for rams than the Jelly bean 4.3, the updates are not worth the headache we kept hearing prior to the Kitkat release, I feel the battery was slightly better before this update I also believe the wifi is somehow instable and slower anyone experiencing these problems???? I have a note 3 T-Mobile version
After the update was finished I couldn't unlock my cell. It wasn't sensing my touch.So I got the s-pen out and tried it and IT WORKED. Then I restarted my phone and it was all better.
How dumb I can't download the update without a wifi connection it shouldn't be up to Samsung if I should download it via wifi or not I have unlimited data!
There was way too much hype behind this version. I did a manual update yesterday and there are a couple of small changes but nothing like I expected. All in all at least I'm in better shape than the few people that managed to get the update on their S4!
Updated to KitKat yesterday, but dont see any worth mentioning changes.. it all looks the same..
I updated to the new 4.4.2 last night, and now the WI-FI connection continually searches, even when connected to my home wi-fi. It also is dropping the connection and then reconnecting, killing my battery
Yes I've noticed. I was using two different apps and now I can't. If I have the stock app chosen the quick reply doesn't work on Handcent.
Just started download of my KitKat for Note 3 on T-mobile. I am in San Francisco area. Finally. I was going to go to CM11. Glad I waited a few days.
Can't use multiple apps for SMS/MMS, you have to choose a primary and if you wish to use another messenger, you have to set it at your default.
Fap, 05 Mar 2014Downloading it right now on Indiana, 03/05/2014; 5:30 PMHow is your update working? I'm in Indiana too and would like to update mine too if it is good.
The ram has increased from 2.3 Gb to a whopping 2.7 GB . Can anybody else confirm ?
Dovice, 05 Mar 2014Re English kitkat for Note 3, I just looked into this and have it directly from someone at Car... moreNonsense, mate. My carrier is Vodafone UK and I got the update around 8pm GMT last night.(5/3/14)
Sent a screenshot to GSM Arena this morning.
Can only echo what others have said, no big issues as fo yet, just using slightly more battery than usual.
